Capture and assess primary and EYFS pupils’ learning and development with ReallySchool!

Low-cost, easy to use and super secure, ReallySchool, our award-winning app and online portal, helps teachers and TAs to complete primary and EYFS student observations and assessments quickly and effectively. From creating observations and linking learning to assessment, to monitoring and tracking progress, identifying learning gaps – and more! It also helps boost parental engagement and supports the continuation of learning at home.

Save time / Easy to use 

ReallySchool saves teachers at least two hours daily! Observations of skills acquisition can be taken and stored directly into an online log for each child without having to print them and stick them into journals. Teachers and TAs can capture photos and videos direct from their device, add in external links and documents, and add written and voice notes to observations on the go in just a few clicks – or add existing ones to a child’s record. Our beautiful learning journals and informative timelines and reports give you access to all the information you need at your fingertips, anywhere, anytime

Home learning  

If a school closes for a period of time, with ReallySchool, learning can carry on at home and ensure parents and children are always fully supported. Teachers can share remote learning activities with parents (using videos, photos, audio clips, documents, links and notes to demonstrate how to complete activities). In turn, parents can send what their child has achieved back to the teacher to review and assess – as well as add any comments or feedback about their out-of-school achievements.


Assess and report

Teachers can effortlessly apply assessments and change the criteria mid-assessment if a pupil has done something additional to the current topic, from the in-built list (includes all UK criteria and frameworks – including non-statutory guidance such as Development Matters 2021) and instantly check where learning gaps are. Meanwhile the mix of reports available (class progress, student progress, SOAP, baseline assessments, end of KS1 and KS2 assessment, whole school attainment), helps provide valuable whole-school insights. 

Engage parents/carers

Parents/carers have access to their own version of the ReallySchool app, which is incredibly easy to use. Teachers can send videos, photos, audio clips and learning journals to parents to highlight what their child is learning about at school. Parents/carers can also capture their own special moments from home to share with the teacher. It also allows teachers to send out home learning activities, encouraging parents/carers to contribute to their child’s learning. Teachers can award student badges and share these with parents to celebrate their child’s achievements with them and if a pupil has done something extra special they can create a special celebration post to send to their parents/carers.

    “In a data-rich but time-poor educational climate, giving teachers a resource that saves them time and produces effective and purposeful reports is a no brainer!”
